Problematically creating symbols - unique PropSymbolNumber
I'm using some code to create linked symbols on a screen & have run afoul of not using unique Symbol numbers (Dynproperty PropSymbolNumber).
Is there a method to check for existing values? Only way I can think of is to loop through all the symbols on the screen every time to check.
How does the program handle this natively when a new symbol is placed?
My other option is to randomise it slightly, but that doesn't guarantee being unique.
I'm placing objects with VBA on to a screen with existing symbols so I cant just start at a fixed number & increment for each symbol (what happen if the code is run twice for example?).
Any thoughts anyone?
